Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is part of the Faculty Diversity Initiative, which is one of many programs outlined in the JHU Roadmap on Diversity and Inclusion. The Office of the Provost has stated that the fellowships “seek to locate, promote, and nurture the work of outstanding early career postdoctoral scholars at Johns Hopkins University. The program will prepare participants for faculty positions at Johns Hopkins (or elsewhere), particularly in fields where there are fewer women or members of underrepresented minorities. A successful nominee will be someone with diverse life experiences and background who has potential for both a successful fellowship and a possible future tenure-track faculty appointment at Johns Hopkins.

The fellowship supports:

  • One year of salary at the current NIH level of support for postdoctoral fellow
  • Benefits (determined by home department’s administrative manager)
  • $5,000 stipend for research expenses
  • $2,000 for professional development activities (travel to/registration for a workshop/conference, etc.
